EP. 11: Faith and Feelings

Have you ever had one of those days? Or even one of those weeks? We’ve all been there. Join us this week on God Hears Her as Eryn and Elisa discuss emotions and a way to process hard feelings with God.

Notes and Quotes:

Feelings are neither right or wrong, feelings inform us. —Ann Voskamp “I can come to Him, or I can’t. I get to choose that, right? But grace is always there. It is always present. It is not forced upon us, but it is always there.” “Jesus doesn’t do life alone. He is in relationship with the Father and Spirit.” “Sometimes I struggle with feeling like I have to be put together in order to come to Him.” “Write down those ugly, shameful feelings and look at them. Not as an Instagram caption, but as a sacred moment, alone. Then admit and accept where you are, and surrender that to God. Evaluate your life choices: Are they bringing you closer to or farther away from God? And then set reminders to live in God’s truth.” “I think that’s the biggest thing with feelings and faith: Sometimes we think they can’t be in tandem. They can’t live together.” “Breathe Prayer: Lord, guide me to the wise path that protects my heart for the purposes you have for me. Use me to honor what you want me to know: that I am loved, that I need work, that I am called to a greater purpose you have for me, and that I don’t need to be scared of my ‘messy.’ But help me to recognize the messy and give it over to you. I love you, Jesus. Amen.” When our feelings are messy, it’s so important to tell someone, because we can lean in on their faith when our faith isn’t there. Links/Books/Resources Mentioned In Show:

In this series, Skip Heitzig explores the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 so we can learn from and follow their example. It's time to fact-check your fear with faith.
